Gorman Unit

Welcome to the Gorman Unit

We are a newly developed alcohol and drug inpatient unit and outpatient service. We support people in Inner Sydney as well as from wider NSW. Our team consists of nurses, doctors, social workers, psychologists, counsellors, aboriginal worker and consumer worker.

We will work with you to develop your own treatment plan. Treatment will be provided in the inpatient or outpatient setting, or a combination of the two, depending on your situation.

Our inpatient service will provide you with a treatment program to meet your needs, including support from allied health professionals to help you during your stay. The team will work with you to set up ongoing treatment and support for when you leave the unit.

The inpatient treatment program usually runs for five to seven days, and you are supported by our specialist staff 24/7.  We take a holistic approach: our doctors and nurses will monitor and treat your symptoms of withdrawal, and the team will help with psychosocial support and post-withdrawal planning.

Our outpatient services are designed to help support you in the community by providing treatment planning, assessment, ambulatory withdrawal, relapse prevention, and counselling.

At the Gorman Unit our aim is to help and support you through your journey and help you take the first steps towards meeting your goals.
